    Ownership Verified: 2012 Fiat 500 - The Mexican Wart

    Congrats, sounds like a decent lil runabout. Note - I've driven the Automatic non turbo 500 - Autotragic is more like it - it's a Aisin 6 speed box so I'm sure it's dead reliable but it's both power sucking and poorly programmed so there's some shockingly abrupt shifts. For running around...

    Unverified Ownership 2005 Subaru Outback

    Very nice! This is honestly the best looking generation of Legacy/Outback, inside and out IMO.

    Monthly Virtual Meets - 2nd Saturday of the Month

    If needed, I could set up the meeting with my Google Apps For Education account - I'd need to test to see if it'd actually allow for people to drop in though - Google could have been even *more* restrictive to prevent people from Zoombombing classes.

    Yeah it's semi common here for people to just say fuck it and drive with fog lights on only. It's dumb. On a random note, holy shit 4Runners are expensive used. I knew the Toyota Tax was real but fuck.

    Car makers face screen test to judge safety

    With even Audi caving and going all in on touchscreens, a lot of the people/journos who loved the dial controller method of interaction have switched teams. They hate on Mazda especially for not including a touchscreen despite their own studies finding that drivers who interact with touchscreen...

    There are a few brands here that offer remote roll up via keyfob IIRC but they put pinch protection on all windows. Not sure if VW does this, they prob do and are just super conservative here given our litigious nature.

    Yeah, we were using it at work for Chromebook printing and migrated to another solution as soon as the rumors swirled about GCP's demise. Still a adjustment though.

    UAZ Patriot off-roader is coming to America as the 2022 Bremach Taos

    This looks interesting but man launching a new brand in the US is hard. Hopefully they can make it work, it'd be cool to see something like this on the roads. Gives off sorta kinda XJ vibes with the whole "it's got 2 solid axles but it's not a wrangler" thing. EDIT: They're almost certainly...
